Navarre




The Prince of Navarre at Crécy. Hi standard bearer has the arms of Navarre on his shield and horse. I spent a lot of time researching the Prince but couldn't find any references to his Standard bearer at the battle. If anyone out there has information ..
Probably one of the most complicated figures I have painted. The standard is by Flags of War.
These are Foundry figures on Front Rank horses.

Dio-drama

Two little dioramas.  Just to make the table more interesting. The knight getting mugged is an old Hotspur figure.  It was donated to me from Jack Glanville after I mentioned to him that I was looking for one.  I loved painting it... So thanks Jack!

The 38

The collection so far,  56 infantry and 38 knights. Trying my best to keep focused on this project.  I think this could be the largest amount of cavalry (in one period) that I have painted.

The Chatillon family

A work in progress image of the Chatillons at Crécy. Just a mounted Squire to add into the middle base and it will be ready to take it's place in the bigger unit.
The new figure (middle base) is a mix... Claymore Castings body, Perry plastic head and a Front Rank horse.  The horse has had it's front legs bent back to give the impression of it falling.

The French Collection


The French knights charge at Crécy. I still have a lot more to do... But you get the idea.
